The 14th Annual Polar Plunge and Plunge Party is almost here!

This Saturday’s Polar Plunge at the Sands Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach, it will be a brisk but sunny 59 degrees according to Ed Piotrowski – ABC 15’s Chief Meteorologist. Ed is also a long time supporter of the Special Olympics South Carolina and of the yearly Polar Plunge event.

So exciting to see that there are at least $52,208 in donations made so far towards the goal of $110,000! The 5 individuals and the 5 teams listed on the Special Olympics South Carolina portal are really making a huge impact for our local athletes!

The Myrtle Beach Polar Plunge is part of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Torch Run and 100% of the funds raised directly benefit athlete programs around our state. Special Olympics South Carolina provides year-round sports training and competition for more than 29,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

We cannot wait to see everyone this weekend! Come out and cheer & chill with us!

Registration is still open!

Due to the Coronavirus, upcoming plunge dates, schedule of events, and times will vary and are subject to change. Plunge times will be staggered in smaller groups to prevent over-crowding and ensure safety. Virtual plunges will be an option also. We ask that everyone practices social distancing and wears a face mask while participating at all plunge events.
